Music Video: Club Cheval “Discipline”

clubcheval-discipline1

“Discipline” is the title track of Club Cheval’s long awaited debut, which doesn’t come out till 2016. There’s not much to this video; it’s essentially just a giant game of musical chairs, but it just has the perfect chill vibe without trying really hard. Directed by Paris-based duo Julien Choquart and Camille Hirigoyen (J.A.C.K.), I think this was my favourite music video of the week.

Watch the video for “Discipline” below.
